The Fuji X-Pro1 and I get acquainted…

So i have had the Fuji XPro-1 camera in my hands for about 5 days now, i instantly fell in love with it. Now i am not really a technical photographer, i know what i like and generally like what i know. So changing my work flow is a challenge ,I use Capture One Pro, a Canon 5D Mk2/3 and a Hassleblad with P65 DigiBack when Budget allows… but for this little box of magic i was going to change my processing ways, but now i dont have to, Capture One will support this beauty.

I only have the 18mm lens for now and i don’t really like a wide lens, but, i LOVE this… Its simple. This isn’t a review, more a proclamation of love.

But all this is pointless really so lets look at some picture. (BTW i have never done any street photography so this is a first for me, encouraged by the Fuji XPro-1

    Man! Those are pretty good photos. I think it’s really interesting with this Fuji X System, that some photographers blame it for its quirks and slowness while others are able to accustom themselves and produce really great results. Looking forward to your 365 Project!

      Thanks very much! The Fuji has quirks thats for sure, but all cameras do i guess. I love it enough to change the way i shoot, it seems to be about thinking about a shot and not grabbing at a shot!

    Glad to see you and the X Pro 1 are becoming acquainted and it appears to be a good fit! I really enjoyed the shot of the man smoking with the layers of people between you and the subject. Great shot.

    Congratulations with your new camera.
    I’m curious. Why did you choose the X-Pro instead of the X-E1?

    • kisskissclick says :

      To be honest i didn’t even consider the X-E1. Controversial maybe. I saw it but for me the OVF is very needed, now after having a few weeks with the X-Pro1 i use the OVF pretty much all the time, i feel more a part of the process. I am sure the X-E1 is great, but for me the design of the X-Pro1 has that something special that the X-E1 just doesn’t have. Totally subjective yes, but the X-Pro1 makes me excited to look at, to hold and to use.

        I am just in the phase of deciding if I should get the E1 or the Pro1. For me the size and weight is also a major factor. Being used only to heavy and massive cameras up to now, I was shocked when I first played with the X-E1 in my local camera store… it’s so small and light like a feather 🙂
